Chicken bone found in Sylvester

Sylvester was presented to the clinic after a day of vomiting and not eating. Our veterinary nurse took a blood test and the results showed nothing abnormal but we discovered he had a lot of faeces in his abdomen so we gave him a laxative enema to help him flush his bowels. Despite this, Sylvester was still not better so it was decided an x-ray of his abdomen will be required. The x-ray showed an abnormality in his intestines.

Sylvester underwent exploratory surgery and a small piece of chicken bone was found lodged in his lower bowel. This was removed and after a few days of intensive care, Sylvester was good to go home. He is now doing well but chicken bones are off the menu for him!
